My son started with Heather after over 1 year at his previous childminder, from being 6 months old. During the difficult transition Heather was 100% patient, loving and caring with both him and us as parents. I am so happy I found Home from Home, it is the perfect setting for my little boy. They are always busy, and embracing the outdoors. He has lots of lovely friends and now often doesn't want to come home! 100% recommended to anyone who is considering.

Heather is very welcoming, caring and a fantastic childminder. My 2 children have been going since 2015. There is always a wide variety of activities and a nice home cooked meal. My children always come away happy and look forward to their next visit.

My 3 children have been going to Heather since she started in September 2015 and have never had any issues. Her home really is a home from home with a relaxed laid back atmosphere. The children enjoy a wide variety of activities and get home cooked nutritious meals. Heather regularly keeps me up to date with their progress in the EYFS framework. Overall the setting is safe and secure and my children enjoy going very much :)

Heather is a friendly, caring childminder who has cared for my 4 yr old for the last 7 months. She has a warm and loving home with lots to do. There are plenty of days out as well as arts and crafts, garden play, educational play and just chilling out at home. It's a real home from home, a happy, safe environment for kids to thrive.
